After an intelligence failure at Op-Center results in a major terrorist attack, director Chase Williams radically transforms the agency into a ground-breaking mobile strike force.
It’s a beautiful day in Manhattan as excited tourists board the floating Air & Space Museum on the USS Intrepid—until a horrible explosion rips across the flight deck, showering the body parts of innocent people everywhere. The perpetrator is none other than Captain Ahmed Salehi, an Iranian mastermind whose last terrorism plot was foiled at the last minute by Op-Center.
Back in Washington, the White House orders Op-Center disbanded—or so it seems. Unbeknownst to America’s enemies, director Chase Williams has been put in charge of a brand-new, top-secret covert attack team known only as BLACK WASP. Its members, each chosen for their unique set of specialized black-ops skills—martial arts expert Lieutenant Grace Lee, sharpshooter Lance Corporal Jaz Rivette, and JAG attorney and criminologist Major Hamilton Breen—have been assigned to seek out Salehi and finally bring him to justice.
But Salehi is part of an even more frightening conspiracy, led by a renegade Iranian tycoon determined to establish a new Islamic State that will dwarf the horrors of ISIS. From the heart of Manhattan, to the swamps of Trinidad, to the sunbaked mud villages of Yemen, this new Op-Center is America’s only line of defense against a bloody Middle Eastern tyrant.
In Rovin's exciting sixth entry in the thriller series created by Tom Clancy and Steve Pieczenik (after 2018's For Honor), President Wyatt Midkiff disbands the Op-Center because its director, Chase Williams, and his staff failed to anticipate a major terrorist act, the bombing of Manhattan's Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. Williams gets a chance to redeem himself by heading the effort to track down the mastermind behind the attack, Ahmed Salehi, of Iran's Ministry of Intelligence. Williams commands a new secret team Black-ops Wartime Accelerated Strike Placement consisting of Lt. Grace Lee of the U.S. Army's Special Operations Command, a martial arts master who specializes in deadly knife-work; Marine Lance Corporal Jaz Rivette, a sharpshooter; and Maj. Hamilton Breem, a criminologist and member of the JAG Corps. Various terrorist organizations help Salehi as he goes on the run, but the members of the Black Wasp team catch up with him in Aden, Yemen, in a satisfying showdown. Military action fans will be rewarded.

Ton Clancy’s Op-Center
This book begins with an error in the first sentence by naming a character as a LCPL in the United States Navy! Even an idiot knows there is NO SUCH rank in the Navy. Kind of ruined the entire book because I have no idea of how many other ridiculous errors will be found. This author doesn’t deserve to be associated with Tom Clancy!
